    By gateway, you mean an internet connection sharing through winXP or vista?

    Just type \\ip into your IE browser, and you will see the shares and printers for that host.

    Your PC uses netbios to find windows shares, which are not passed over the "gateway" that is why they do not show up in My Network Places.
